    The idea of having a custom made instrument is growing fast on me.
    I´ve searching / contacting several local luthiers (I´m from Argentina) since the final cost is much lower.

    One of the ones I´ve been looking at have some designs that I really like, but I´d really to hear your opinions about them. I personally love the headless 6.

    Thanks, Papersen

    BTW, the site is in Spanish but it´s easy to navigate.

    I don't care so much for the electric 4-string, but the 5 and 6 I like, particularly the 5. Those body carvings intrigue me.

    That 6 string headless is beautiful. If I wasn't on the opposite side of the world, and I could afford it, I'd be seriously interested in one.

    What do they cost Papersen?

    The headless 6 looks the best out of all of them :)

    Forgive my geographical ignorance, is Argentina anywhere near Chile? If it is, you might want to check out <a href="http://www.alfonsoiturra.com/home.htm">Alfonso Iturra</a>

    Hi Adrian.
    I live in downtown Buenos Aires. I´m glad to see that you enjoyed visiting the country, I´ve travelled all over it several times, and I agree with you.
    Didn´t know you were touring with Chayanne. Did you bring some of your Nordies here ? Maybe I can catch you next time.

    And about the women ..... fortunately, you never get used to it.

    Ok, i dont want to derail the thread- but i found it funny that while most of them men were going carzy over Chayanne's blonde backup singer, we were going crazy over the ridiculously beautiful brunnetes-
    I have not been with Chayanne for about 7-8 years, but i may be back with him someday- i missed out on this last tour because i had my daughter at home but she leaves for college tomorrow, so next time, maybe. I stayed at a hotel in Corrientes av, i forget the name of the hotel , i stayed there 4 different times. It was right next door the an Opera house. Damn! i forget.. but there was an Italian restaurant down the street that was out of this world! and the parrilladas!! forget about it! bife the lomo and red wine..man, I am making myself sick to go back here! damn, what was that hotel? i could tell you stories ! but if you know what Chayannes audiences are like, then you know.... ;)
